Eastwick: Series Creator Not Angry over ABC Show Cancellation

EastwickA couple days ago, Eastwick series creator and executive producer Maggie Friedman said that she was “furious” over ABC’s cancellation of the series. She’s apparently had some time to think about her choice of words and regrets the statement.

Friedman wrote, “The other day, when we were discussing the cancellation of Eastwick, I misspoke in the worst possible way. The word ‘furious’ was poorly chosen by me. You had said to me that ‘the fans are understandably furious’ and so I agreed that I was too, but the truth is, I’m not.”

TV show supportShe continued, “I see that word now in print attributed to me and it’s very painful, because it seems to imply I am angry with ABC and nothing could be further from the truth. They treated me really well. I am not the least bit furious, with anyone. That’s simply not the kind of person I am. Yes, I’m sad about the show being cancelled, because it was creatively fulfilling and tons of fun to make and an amazing group of people, but I’m not angry.”

What do you think? Are you “furious” with ABC or just “sad” that Eastwick didn’t reach a bigger audience and was cancelled?

Noooooooooooo you cannot do this to us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just when something good comes along it gets cancelled!!!!
This series was by far better than most other series that have been running for a couple of years, plus the story has been left dangling .

I stumbled on Eastwick about 4 months ago by accident on Apple TV. I never it existed.

I have passed the word on to a group of my friends whom all love it and are as disappointed as I am by the cancellation.

How come this series was never promoted properly?

The acting and story lines are fantastic.

Go on give it anothergo.

PLEASE
